Perched 15 stories atop the Chicago Sun-Times building and next door to the Merchandise Mart, the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza River North is located in the bustling River North neighborhood. Overlooking the Chicago River, the hotel has premium views of the Chicago skyline. The 15th-floor lounge, Cityscape Bar, is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows, and is prime real estate for watching the sun set in the Windy City over cocktails. Head to the on-site restaurant, Merchants Cafe, for "elevated" American comfort cuisine for any meal of the day.
Visitors find themselves within walking distance of the Loop, the main business district, as well as the famed Magnificent Mile, chock-full of chic shops and restaurants. The River North neighborhood is home to trendy restaurants, renowned art galleries and buzzing nightlife. No need to weather the elements; guests can access the CTA Brown Line train station from the hotel through Merchandise Mart. Attractions like Navy Pier, Millennium Park and Lincoln Park Zoo are a quick cab or train ride away, making this hotel a wonderful home base for exploring all that is Chicago.
